Former model Camila Alves McConaughey is in great shape after giving to three children in five years, but admits she's curvier than she used to be, and she's okay with that.
"I had the typical model body, but after babies it changed,” McConaughey told People Sept. 15. "I look more like a woman. Even [my husband] Matthew has seen that change and he’s completely okay with it.
“I'm definitely way curvier. My waist used to be tiny. I just saw a picture of Miley Cyrus with a little crop top and I’m like, 'That was me growing up in Brazil!' ”
McConaughey says she's not obsessed with regaining her willowy pre-baby body or desperately fighting the aging process. Instead, the model-turned-handbag-designer is focused more on being healthy over being skinny.
“The mistake that women make these days is trying to chase their youth,” said McConaughey, 30. “In my twenties I wanted to be hot. Now, I want to be healthy.”
The Brazilian bombshell, who's mom to Levi, 5, Vida, 3, and Livingston, eight months, eats well and works out several days a week to maintain her enviable figure. Meanwhile, husband Matthew McConaughey recently made headlines after losing 38 pounds on a near-starvation diet for the film"Dallas Buyers Club."
The strapping 6-foot-tall McConaughey slimmed down from 181 pounds to 143 pounds by eating very little and doing intense cardio workouts. He has since regained his once-athletic physique, but admits the extreme low-calorie diet made him weak and lethargic.
"Dallas Buyers Club," which co-stars Jared Leto, hits theaters Nov. 1.
